Civility in critiquing the ideas of others is no vice. Rudeness in defending your own ideas is no virtue.

My daughter is coming home tonight from college for a visit, and if my wife is to be believed, my daughter is having a whole slew of blond moments.  Since she has always had lovely dark brown hair (for a somewhat blurry example and a glimpse of her awesome dress, see ABC News and Prom follow up), it is hard for me to picture my daughter blond, but they should be home in a few minutes and I guess I'll have a chance to see.  Which brings me, of course, to the subject of tattoos (my daughter does not have any of those, as far as I know, and if she does and I don't know, I don't want to know, so don't tell me).  Um, yes, tattoos.  How is it that a generation that thinks that no fashion should last more then about ten minutes and that thinks nothing of changing hair color, etc. etc. also likes the idea of permanent tattoos?  Did nobody explain permanent to them?  Yes, a green undulating lizard on your shoulder may be very "in" right now, but will it still be "in" next year?  It seems so long term for such a short term generation.  Oh well, if I understood, I guess I wouldn't be a parent.

I'll let you know how the hair looks.  I might even, possibly, be able to get a picture, but no promises.
